    They'll Love Me When I'm Dead

    ★★★★

    “No story has a happy ending unless you stop telling it before it’s over”

    Very well edited and put together.

  • Great Battle of the Japan Sea

    Great Battle of the Japan Sea

    ★★½

    There's quite a bit to enjoy here with some big actors, miniature battles and an intriguing way of utilising maps and battle plans. The use of WW1-esque iconography during the battle scenes also allows them to have some impact. The nationalism still comes through however whilst the cheapness of the production becomes more and more apparent. Also, some scenes seem to go on for a terribly long time

  • Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji

    Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji

    ★★★★★

    This was just spectacular through and through with the final act leaving me speechless.

    Bloody Spear at Mount Fuji seems to join two eras of Japanese cinema together, with its charming sense of humour and humanity that could make it a contemporary with the works of Yamanaka and Ozu (Ozu and Shimizu are both credited as some sort of producers) whilst its themes of class and its brutailty almost definetly inspired Hara-Kiri and the other 'cruel Jidai-Geki'.

    This makes sense…

  • A Very English Scandal

    A Very English Scandal

    ★★★½

    Glad to see Hugh Grant getting a comeback plus the writing was pretty stellar with only a few clunky moments.
